            There is nothing better than a freshly baked pizza but we keep a frozen one on hand for a last minute meal. I’m surprised how good it is. Also, with this COVID, we’re careful to avoid restaurants and/or takeouts. Have a great day, Norah!

              Thanks, Steve. You have a great day/week too.
              Hopefully, you’ll feel more confident about going out again after the vaccinations have been rolled out.

      I didn’t know about Losar, Kate. It sounds fun for those celebrating. Thanks for alerting me to it.
      We still remember our parents and their birthdays, long after they are gone. You have an extra reminder with the festival.
